Fuel Filter Hose help!!!!!
 
Ok folks. On the front of the fuel filter. They're two lines: One direct fuel line into the engine manifold, and another.... I don't know where that small hose goes. If you truly know. Please help me out. It's brittle and I wanna replace it. Thanks y'all

It's a breather hose that goes to the "F" connection on the intake boot.

If i'm wrong let me know...but almost positive that's what it is. Good idea to replace it, I still have to, i used electrical tape as a temporary patch over a hole in the line when i did my filter.

^^^ He's right. It's just 1.8x3mm vacuum hose.

Actually, it's 1.8x3.5mm. But you'll be fine with the 0.5mm difference.

Ah yes. But 1.8 is the internal diameter so that's the one that's more critical :-D
